arizona. and speaker boehner even calls it the law of the land. these are the people whose main goal in unseating president obama was to go after the health care act. now, they've even weakened on that. >> right. and one of the key divisions within the republican party is, on the one side, you have people who recognize that the 2010 kind of tea party uprising was a momentary phenomenon. the backlash against it has effectively wiped it out. it will be around because it can be self sustaining because there's enough republican districts that you can have several dozen of these members in the house for the foreseeable future. and the other candidate that looked at the 2012 election and said we're on the wrong side of the demographic and political shifts that are happening here. what can we do to change the course of this. but the problem is that there are a ton of republicans who are just fine with controlling the house, controlling a lot of governor's mansions, controlling the kind of consultantcy corporations. a lot of people are doing very well by this status quo. >> especially when the

clinic which is fighting to keep its doors open after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> w

enforce what we believe to be unconstitutional laws. >> different issue, same words. states' rights. back in the 1950s and '60s, local police often stood by and refused to enforce new civil rights laws. now, some conservative sheriffs say they'll refuse to enforce new gun control laws from washington because they may consider them unconstitutional. today's conservatives aren't opposing the right of our children to go to school. but they are standing in the way of our children going to school safely. that's why president obama is proposing these strong, common sense solutions to gun violence. >> that most fundamental set of rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. fundamental rights that were denied to college stunts dents virginia tech and elementary school students in newtown and kids on street corners in chicago. those rights are at stake. we're responsible. >> we're all responsible for protecting our children and that's why change is going to happen. all that talk about states' rights couldn't stop progress 50 years ago. and he must make sure it doesn't stop progr

just part of an overall push for safety. but do you think it has the support to become law with the make-up of this new congress? >> well, rev, i've been working on these issues now for about 20 years. and we have a good coalition in the house. we've already reintroduced the magazine and we're getting ready to introduce the companion bill to senator finestein's bill. what we really need, though, is the voices of the american people to be heard. you can not underestimate the lobbying power of the nra in congress. and even my office, even though people know that i am a strong advocate for gun safety legislation, i get calls every day from nra members. and so what really needs to happen to change this debate in washingt washington, in congress, is the moms and dads, the aunts and uncles and husbands and wives of america need to call their members of congress and they need to tell them that they support this ban on the assault rifles and the ban on the assault magazines. >> well, let me tell you why, congresswoman, i think that that is extremely a feasible strategy of getting people to

we've gotten so much in this country. we've gotten minimum wage and clean air laws and f.d.a and all of those things. from the bottom up, people demanded it in their workplaces, in their coal mines, in their churches and ethnic organizations and their schools. >> well, senator brown, let me congratulate you and your election. they spent $20,000 trying to defeat you and you're still here. >> thank you. >> thanks for your time tonight. >> you're watching a special edition of politics nation on msnbc on a historic day, president obama's inauguration. this is the place for politics. msnbc. ♪ and the home of the brave i didn't think it was anything. i had pain in my abdomen... it just wouldn't go away. i was spotting, but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. as
